"Creamer with Oranges" Oil on linen, 10x14
In the fall of 2009 Bobbi will be offering a series of workshops which will challenge artists at all levels. In the first workshop, “A Visual Journey -Painting The Still Life in Oil, From Life”, Bobbi will take each student through the process of setting up the still life, emphasizing the importance of beginning a painting with a “concept” firmly in mind. Painting in a direct manner, consideration will be given to abstract design, colour, value, edges and more. In particular, students will learn about filling air and experience the joy of putting paint on canvas. The artist will demonstrate at the workshop.

Workshops will take place in Bobbi’s spacious studio where students will enjoy painting subjects from life under large north-lit windows. In addition to teaching students about painting, Bobbi will share her philosophy about painting, the business side of art and life of the professional artist.
